Pulitzer Prize-Winning Art Critic Pans Hunter Biden’s Overpriced Paintings: You Wouldn’t ‘Spend More than $1,000’ on Them

Sebastian Smee, a Pulitzer Prize-winning art critic at the Washington Post, suggested the art world is not wholly impressed by Hunter Biden’s latest venture but said a “few people” are looking to make money “from his notoriety.” He likened the scandal-plagued son to a “cafe painter” whose work would not go for more than $1,000 unless the buyer was “related to the artist.”
